Senator Discussed Terrorist Concerns

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul told the Daily News he walked away pleased following a meeting Thursday with FBI Director Robert Mueller. Paul met with Mueller to address how Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi were admitted into the United States as refugees from Iraq before eventually being arrested on terrorism charges in Bowling Green in May. Paul, a Bowling Green Republican, said his main concern was whether the 60,000 Iraqi refugees admitted into the country in the past three years were screened properly, and what was being done to screen them properly in the future.
